The answer to this question depends on your answer to a couple of other questions. For example:
If you have been baptized, then you are already a member of the universal Christian church made up of all baptized believers. If you have not been baptized, you will need to speak with the pastor to explore what baptism means, the vows or promises you make in seeking baptism, and to setup a time to be baptized. We believe that God is the one who baptizes us, and as such, God is not asked for a “do over”; that is baptism is to be done once and that is sufficient even if we do not remember our baptism or have not lived up to our baptismal vows. By your baptism you join the universal church, then you may choose to join Three Crosses Church. To join Three Crosses Church: “As a member of Three Crosses Church, will you faithfully participate in its ministries by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness?”
If you are currently a member of a church in another denomination, we will contact your former church and let them know you are joining Three Crosses Church. You will be asked to take these vows of membership: “As a member of Three Crosses Church, will you faithfully participate in its ministries by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness?”
Were you a member of a church in another denomination, but you have spent a long time away from active membership in any church? If so, you will need to meet with the pastor to discuss a renewed relationship with the church and consider taking the vows involved in being restored to membership in a church. These are the same vows taken at baptism, but you are not baptized you are just restating your new commitment to live as a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
